The ultimate trail shock: the brand-new DPX2
Our highest performing inline shock gets refined
Combining DPS XC efficiency and X2 DH performance, the DPX2 is the ultimate trail shock. The Dual Piston Base Valve has dedicated compression and lockout circuits for each of the three modes—Open, Medium, and Firm. It also features a recirculating damper design found in X2 shocks, creating excellent small bump sensitivity, great mid-stroke damping support, and better control in transitions.

Dual Piston System (DPS) features three on-the-fly settings—Open, Medium, and Firm—to allow riders to adapt to a wide variety of terrain. The valve design provides full lockout without compromising bump compliance, ride control, and efficiency. Factory Series DPX2 shocks feature an additional 10 clicks of compression adjustability in the Open mode.
Taking the oil flow architecture from the FLOAT X2 and DHX2 designs, the DPX2 is the X2’s little brother. This system creates low hysteresis, quick hydraulic response, better sensitivity and improved heat dissipation. It also provides a wide, usable tuning range and checked low-speed compression and rebound flow paths for better tuning and consistent performance.
NEW FOR 2018
A more linear spring curve gives EVOL forks and shocks plushness off the top, extra mid-stroke support, and more tunable bottom-out progression, allowing riders to tap into the ideal pairing of front and rear-end feel.
SHOCKS The new lighter one-piece EVOL air sleeve was designed for each shock size (imperial and metric) to balance internal forces, and has maximized bushing overlap to reduce friction during “real world” forces like side-loading and twisting.
FORKS EVOL technology from rear shocks is now integrated into all FOX forks. EVOL increases negative air spring volume, specifically positioned and sized for optimum small bump sensitivity.
Kashima's distinctive gold color is backed by its high performance attributes—properties that provide an exceptionally smooth feel and extreme durability.

The recommended settings in this tuning guide are designed to be a starting point, in order to get you out on your first ride in as few steps as possible.
To best maintain the performance and durability of your product under normal use, FOX recommends that you have regular fork and shock maintenance performed according to the service intervals.
